Leftist racism


Why does the race of a fashion model matter?  All that should matter is whether she effectively sells clothes

Fans of model Kendall Jenner were delighted when it was announced last week that she was lending her good looks to Mango's new Tribal Spirit collection - one of her first campaigns of 2016.

But critics have taken to social media to question why a white model was chosen to represent a collection said to be inspired by the African Savannah, which will include a tribal print dress.

The reality TV star-turned-supermodel is modelling the first of four trends to be showcased in advertising campaigns for Spring/Summer 2016, and the Spanish retailer said each would be represented by 'the face that best defines it'.

But on social media many couldn't have disagreed more, and Ldndxv was one of many who took to Twitter to share her comments with the retailer.  'Seriously Mango,' she wrote. 'You should know better. Leave cultural appropriation in 2015.'

Pablo Godoy Estel agreed, saying the company's 'cultural appropriation' was a shame. Sharpay Evans added sarcastically: 'Mango's new campaign Tribal Spirit is inspired by the African Savannah and Kendall Jenner, a white girl, is the model?'

'cultural appropriation' is the new whine of Liberals; they obviously have too much spare time.

Wait, so you CAN stereotype as long as you claim to be avoiding "Cultural Appropriation?"

Surely it's racism and sexism to point out a "white girl" shouldn't be basing a fashion style on Africa. Should "Black men" be stopped designing European fashion?

Does that mean that white women can't buy and wear the dresses? If so then they needn't have bothered to design it because rest assured they won't make money off black women.

The real stupidity here is paying attention to those on social media. Those who participate are largely dissatisfied vacuous bigots. To give any credence to their rants is preposterous.

Cultural appropriation? Uh, am I the only one who remembers the term referring to America as the "melting pot" where immigrants bring their abilities and culture which are added to American culture. With this bizarre logic, only Indians could be Hindu, only Arabs could be muslim, only whites could sing country music, only blacks could sing blues, only Europeans could play classical music. I could go on and on, but I'm sure you get the idea.
